    Is this what finally closes the book on cycling in the U.S., or do riders like Levi Leipheimer manage to carry the sport forward.

    I know Discovery is out now, is there any company in the U.S. that would think about forming a new team?

    Slipstream will be the new U.S. team on the international tour. But they won't be fully accepted for another year. They've got a decent lineup already -- not G.C. contendor type stuff, but decent -- and will be strong in a year or two.

    The sports -- because of greedy, cheating, selfish individuals and a few cutthroat cheating, greedy, selfish teams -- will be hurting on a global scale financially for a few years. but it will survive. It never has been and never will be a prominent sport. But eventually sponsors will hop back on after (hopefully) it stays clean for a time.
